Abodes of Shiva (Kashi Temples)



Kashi Khand, Chapter 18 mentions that various Lings have been installed in the holy city of Kashi by great Rishis (Sages).  It is worth mentioning here that on account of intense prayers to the Lords, the Sages have attained divine powers. In Harikes gardens, Sage Angeeras has installed a Shiv Ling which is known as Angeerayeshwar. Devotees who worship this Ling will achieve Tejas (radiant energy) and will reach heaven after death.


Angeerayeshwar is located at D-35/77, Jangambari Mutt, Jangambari, Varanasi.  This is a famous place and can be reached by rickshaw.  The Shiv Ling is located on the right side when a devotee enters the main gate. The Ling is installed inside the premises of Jangambari Mutt. However, devotees can have darshan as per their convenience.  People can perform pooja on their own. Our enquiries revealed that the place of worship is open from 06.00 a.m. to 09.00 p.m.
